Sacramento shooting victims include injured 4-year-old boy
Four people – including a 4-year-old boy – were shot Friday night inside a south Sacramento apartment, the Sacramento Sheriff’s Office reported.
The boy was taken to an area hospital by a private party and was in stable condition Saturday morning, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.
One of the victims died at a hospital, sheriff’s officials said. A friend identified her as Erica Frazier, 27, of Sacramento.
Deputies responded to an apartment complex on the 7300 block of Stockton Boulevard, just south of Florin Road, at around 10:40 p.m. They found three adult shooting victims on the scene: the 27-year-old woman, a 30-year-old man and a 26-year-old man, sheriff’s officials said.
All three were taken to a hospital by paramedics. The 30-year-old man is in critical condition and the 26-year-old man is stable, sheriff’s officials said.
The 4-year-old boy was taken to a hospital by a “private party” before deputies arrived on the scene, the sheriff’s office said in a news release.
Sheriff’s investigators “have not identified a motive for this crime, but they do believe the location was targeted,” officials said in a news release. Witnesses told investigators that five men in dark clothing were seen leaving the scene after the shooting occurred.
